3 People Pulled Safely From River in Vineland



    The teens are reunited with family members after rescue.

    Three people are pulled out of a river in Vineland, Cumberland County. Authorities say two kids, ages 10 and 13, were swimming when they got pulled out by a strong current in the Maurice River.

    Emergency crews reported that all three were clinging to the the bridge at Maurice River Parkway and West Almond Road, waiting to be rescued.

    Skyforce10 captured a picture of that river, which shows some fast-moving waters under that bridge.

    All three were pulled out of the water safely and reunited with family members back on land.
